     A nice steady increase in traffic at the complete review in August, as school season starts again.
     Several new titles leapt onto the bestseller list, unsurprisingly -- especially the big names Murakami and McEwan.

For recent bestseller lists, go to previous lists.
For annual and older lists, see also the 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, , 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 , and 2013 lists.
